Ina Brandt
grating coupler; frustrated total reflection
Explanation:
Demonstation of Optical Bistability with a Nonlinear Frustrated-Total-Reflection Filter
M. Haelterman and C. Waelbroeck
The nonlinear frustrated-total-reflection filter is proposed as a remarkably simple all-optical computing element. Potential advantages of this device over nonlinear prism couplers and nonlinear thin films are presented. Optical bistability is experimentally demonstrated by using a liquid crystal as an optically nonlinear material (12 Refs.)

frustrated total reflection
Light leakage at a total reflecting interface when another highly refractive medium is brought close to it.

Check out their glossary, it's quite extensive!


For Gitterkoppler, I found only one instance of “lattice coupler” (see below)
Biomolecular Interaction Analysis-bioaffinity measurement device (SPR, lattice coupler)
www.ibmt.fhg.de/ibmt4_e.html

However, Gitter is often translated as “grating” in an optical context. A search on “grating coupler” yielded some 2,400 hits. The first URL below might be of particular interest to you.
